COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Swiss rookie Damien Brunner scored in the
fourth round of the shootout to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a
4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night
before 19,206, the largest regular-season crowd at Nationwide
Arena in the Blue Jackets' 11-plus seasons.
Brian Lashoff scored in his NHL debut and fellow defenseman Ian
White also scored for Detroit, which finally got on the board
twice in the second period after being humiliated 6-0 in their
opener on Saturday night in St. Louis. Pavel Datsyuk had a goal
to send the game into overtime with 6 minutes remaining in
regulation, and also had an assist.
Cam Atkinson, James Wisniewski and Vinny Prospal scored goals
during regulation for Columbus, which was coming off a 3-2
shootout win at Nashville on Saturday night.
Columbus was playing its first home game without Rick Nash since
the end of the 2001-2002 season.
